A national service provided by Dementia Training Australia
Creating a dementia friendly environment can range from designing a new building to rearranging the furniture within your current building
A dementia friendly environment is enjoyable and meaningful, taking into account a person’s lifestyle, background and interests, as well as being familiar and recognisable. It should be based on key design principles that support people living with dementia.
Our award winning Designing for People with Dementia Service can help you create a dementia friendly environment.
What is the Designing for People with Dementia service?
We provide on-site education, assessment and advice to care managers and staff, project managers, designers and architects.
We can discuss how to use an existing environment more effectively, plan a new facility or refurbish an existing one. We work in acute, residential and community settings across Australia.
Architect and author of the Dementia Design Principles Kirsty Bennett leads our team with a combined expertise that covers architecture, strategic planning, interior design, landscape architecture, nursing, OH&S and operational management.
We can come to you! Our service is national and will typically include a detailed discussion of evidence-based dementia design principles, and an assessment of your facility or plan, with recommendations for improvement.
